Upcoming Webcast -- Smart Cities: Digital solutions for a more livable future
August 29, 2018
9:30 – 10:30 a.m. EST / 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. CET / 7 – 8 p.m. IST
Smart cities have reached a turning point. After the concept was introduced a decade ago, the early results often fell short of the initial hype. Today cities are moving beyond the pilot stage and using data and digital technologies to deliver results that are more relevant and meaningful to residents.  
A new McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) report analyzes how dozens of smart-city applications can perform in different types of urban settings. It finds that they can improve multiple urban quality-of-life indicators by 10-30 percent. The report also offers a snapshot of deployment in 50 cities around the world. While it shows a flurry of activity and innovation, it also indicates that even the most cutting-edge smart cities on the planet have achieved only two-thirds of what is feasible today.  

Join MGI Partner Jaana Remes (San Francisco) and Gernot Strube (Munich) as they discuss findings from the report, including what exactly makes a smart city, the potential benefits for citizens and government, and the opportunities and challenges ahead for the private sector.
